Jessica became an Infant-Toddler teacher at the Lucy Brock Child Development Lab School in September of 2013.  She was excited to join the Lucy Brock teaching team in exploring children’s learning and development through the Reggio Emilia Approach.  Jessica received a BS in History, Secondary Education from Appalachian State University in 2008. After briefly teaching at the middle and high school level, she discovered an interest in working with young children, and began to pursue a career in Early Childhood Education.  In 2014, Jessica received a M.Ed. in Birth-Kindergarten Interdisciplinary Studies in Education and Development from UNC Greensboro. She is passionate about providing and advocating for high quality early experiences for all children. Jessica and her husband welcomed their first child in March of 2018 and are excited to join the Lucy Brock parent family as well, as their daughter will be attending in one of the Infant-Toddler classrooms.
